Sanchez Earns Another Chance On American Idol


It is really starting to heat up on the 11th season of American Idol as we’re down to the top seven but it could have been six if the judges hadn’t decided to use their “save” on a singer that many thought (and still think) is the favorite to come out on top of the reality competition.
Jessica Sanchez has never been in trouble on American Idol and she has been lauded for her maturity for being a 16-year-old but she stumbled this week with her rendition of Jazmine Sullivan’s “Stuttering” and landed in the bottom three with Joshua Ledet, who sang Bruno Mars’ “Runaway Baby” and Elise Testone after her version of Lady Gaga’s “You and I” (Testone also did a duet with Phil Phillips as they performance Goyte’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”). The theme for this week on American Idol was “Songs From The 2010s”, something familiar for most of the viewers.

The judges, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez received one save that they could use at any point this season, but once it’s used, it’s gone. The trio decided to use their save on Sanchez, who was voted out by viewers, and the judges obviously disagreed as they brought her back into the fold after she began to sing her save song, which was Deborah Cox’s “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here”. It didn’t take long for the judges to use their save as Sanchez didn’t even get to the chorus.
American Idol Season 11- Odds to Win
Colton Dixon 8/5      
Phillip Phillips 9/4      
Jessica Sanchez 3/1
Joshua Ledet 12/1    
Skylar Laine 12/1     
Elise Testone 30/1
Hollie Cavanagh 30/1
It may have been a turning point for Sanchez, who some have called cocky and she may have been overconfident coming into this week. She even admitted that she wasn’t surprised that she was voted off, and this could be the kick in the pants to steer the talented teen back in the right direction on American Idol.
